Community and Neighborhoods

The communities of Middle River, Essex and White Marsh were originally established to accommodate the large labor force drawn to the area’s airplane manufacturing industries. Since then, those communities have developed into self-sufficient metropolises with vibrant economies and a safe way of life.

White Marsh is a planned 2,000-acre, mixed-use community adjacent to I-95. Designated an official growth area in 1983, White Marsh is one of the fastest-growing areas in the county, with a present population of more than 213,000. White Marsh has seen more than 3.8 million square feet of business development in the past decade, drawing financial, insurance and healthcare operations that, in turn, attract residents and encourage residential development.

The communities in Baltimore County are a unique blend of historic neighborhoods, suburban communities, rural landscapes and shorefront communities, all at a cost of living below the national average. In Essex, two new neighborhoods are being developed alongside the traditional homes. Water View, a neo-traditional community of 175 single-family detached homes, features tree-lined streets and numerous parks, accompanied by a 96,000-square-foot commercial center that will provide for residents’ needs.

Hopewell Pointe, a new waterfront community of single-family homes and condominiums, includes a private marina, walking trails and scenic overlooks. Communities are available in any number of styles, each conveniently located among commercial centers, tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, public parks and quality education and public resources.

There are other new communities in progress as well, offering a mix of housing types for all ages and incomes.
